CGM Polska to integrate the P1 Project

On February 11, 2015, the National Centre for Health Information Systems concluded an agreement with CompuGroup Medical Polska to continue the integration works as part of the P1 Project - "Electronic Platform for Collection, Analysis and Sharing of Digital Medical Records". CGM Polska will be supported in the project by Hewlett-Packard Polska on a consortium basis.

The Electronic Platform for Collection, Analysis and Sharing of Digital Medical Records (the so-called P1 Platform) is a key and also the largest project within the framework of the Healthcare IT Implementation Programme. The project with a value of nearly EUR 21 million is co-financed by the EU.

The main purpose of constructing an electronic platform for public healthcare services is to enable public authorities, healthcare institutions, pharmacies and medical practices as well as citizens to collect, analyze and share information on medical events. Launching the P1 Project will increase the availability and quality of information concerning the health status of patients. The result of the work will also improve the quality of processing such information.

In general, the P1 Project will create a platform which will provide a range of online services such as an Internet Patient Account, an Electronic Prescription, Referrals or Orders and ensure access to the e-Health information portal. Chances are that 2015 will become a landmark date for the computerization of the patient treatment process. With the Internet Patient Account created within the P1 Project, a patient will become the actual owner of medical records, free to share them with the selected medical personnel.

There are a number of benefits of the P1 Project, the most important of which are as follows:

Increased patient safety

P1 project will increase awareness of the patients and thus their involvement in the treatment process. Collecting medical information in electronic databases and reducing the time in which it becomes available will enable an efficient and coordinated response to health threats.

Support for the diagnosis of the patient

With the consent of the patient, a health professional granted access to the history of the medical services provided, information on the examination results, medication taken, and the medication and interaction control database will be able to speed up the correct diagnosis and quickly decide on an effective treatment.

Support for patient service

As authorized, patients and medical staff will have ongoing access to electronic prescriptions, referrals or orders issued, thus allowing efficient patient service to eliminate potential errors such as inaccuracies while writing or reading documents. Less time spent on paperwork and collecting documents means more time for treatment and for the patient.
